We can all use a little sparkle in our lives right now! So why not treat yourself to a little something sparkly? Or maybe a piece that has some power or resonates with you in some way. It’ll be a token of power, inspiration, and strength during a potentially difficult season. The best part of our picks? Everything is under $50 but not cheap-looking (because you deserve more)! So why not treat yourself and your friends and family to a little something? Here’s some of the best bling under $50 for women over 40.
Best Bling Under $50
We’re a fan of major rings (maybe just to wear on video chat for now) and we love unique designs like this moonstone and faux sapphire ring from HUAY via Amazon. Or go for something chunky and modern like this Jude Jewelers stainless steel ring, also from Amazon.
Pendants That Make A Statement
These aren’t your standard solitaire pendants (although we love those too) – these are more intriguing layering pieces. Check out this serotonin molecule pendant from Rosa Vila Happiness on Amazon for something sleek and simple, or this rotating trio locket from 1928 Jewelry for a more vintage look and interesting mechanics.
Earrings That Look Great With Masks
While sometimes we love statement earrings, it can be hard to manage them and your mask and other PPE. That’s where these skull studs from Amazon, which have a little bit of edge, can do the trick. We also like these delicate evil eye studs from Anthropologie – and who couldn’t use a little more protection from the universe right now?
Earrings That Look Good On Zoom
Since we are all probably doing way more video chats, having earrings that stand out on Zoom, Google Hangouts, and Facetime (or any other form of video connection) is a good idea. We like these Kenneth Jay Lane hoops for a flattering pop of color – plus Kenneth Jay Lane makes costume jewelry with amazing quality.
Pieces With Power
An elegant crystal pendant is a classic token of power and luck, and we adore this black onyx one from Jovivi on Amazon or something a little more natural like this citrine one from Joseph Brothers. For a powerful look, go for black or gray pearls like Kamala Harris! You can get beautiful imitation pearls for under $50 and hardly anyone will know the difference.
While you might not consider hair accessories to be jewelry per se, adding some sparkle or color to your ‘do might be a fun way to change things up (and can also distract from the fact that many of us have not been able to get our hair done the way we did in the “before times”). These beaded hair clips from Madewell available on Shopbop are fun, and of course you can never go wrong with a little sparkle like these crystal clips from Amazon.
We also love picking up totally unique pieces on Etsy and supporting small business owners as well! Plus then you’ll have the option to customize your piece and know that you have something totally unique.
